Ten tips on pre­sent­ing your home for sale

Monthly Chronicle - - Real Estate -

Give your front door a fresh coat of paint, put out a wel­come mat and re­move the clut­ter from around the en­trance to your home.

De­clut­ter. De­cide on what you want to keep and then there are only 3 op­tions for ev­ery­thing else: Sell it, Gift it, or Dump it. Have a garage sale or use Gumtree to sell your stuff.

Use sim­ple ba­sic fur­ni­ture with colour­ful ac­ces­sories.

Re­move fam­ily pho­tos etc., and re­place with plenty of colour­ful art­works hanging at eye-level.

Open win­dows and doors at least an hour be­fore any in­spec­tion.

All lights on.

Play gen­tle peace­ful mood mu­sic in the liv­ing ar­eas.

Use a sub­tle room de­odoriser or oil burner. Empty laun­dry bas­kets and rub­bish bins. Wa­ter the gar­den be­fore in­spec­tions.
